julian cummings driving about, he's going very slowly and so far so good. as long as you have the snow on top, he seems to be taking his time and making it out all right. on occasion, at this hour, people walking around, i have seen. college students, others, but obviously very -- you don't see that very often here. but sometimes people telling us they're simply out for a walk. every one you've run into over the past several hours talk about they're prepared for the storm. they have enough food. they have their batteries and flashlights in case they lose power. but looking around here at least in this section of boston they haven't lost power yet unlike as you mentioned, brooke, more than 380,000 customers other parts of the state. walking around here earlier, just in the last hour, these were the footsteps -- >> oh, look at that they'. >> they're already filling up. >> how quickly the snow is falling. >> reporter: that's right. as you go on, you know -- >> susan, we can't hear you, but we can see where that mark is made. you can see how deep your feet are in that snow. susan candiotti

cummings of maryland and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell. governor, i want to start with you. this line, you have run against the nra in terms of re-election as governor. i have never heard this kind of talk. this talk is crazy. it's reign of terror talk like from the french revolution. get your gun. you're the one next. if you have any group in this country about illegal immigration, about the debt crisis, you better be armed and ready to fight. >> well, chris, not only is it crazy stuff, and it really is outright, flat out committable stuff, but worse, it has heavy racial overtones and i'm sure congressman cummings is going to talk about that. so much so that i think it's incumbent upon the republican party leaders, such as they are, to stand up and disavow wayne lapierre now, disavow the statement, say it's against everything we believe in. we do not scare people with images of latino gangs and looting by looters after a storm, things that conjure up nothing but racial overtones. i think if the republican party wants to do anything in the future in this country in the next

from maryland, representative cummings, who is the ranking member on the house oversight and government reform committee, the committee that has jurisdiction on voting reform issues, for as much time as the distinguished member requires. mr. cummings: thank you very much. i thank the gentleman for yielding. i also take this moment to thank the congressional black caucus for making this happen. i thank representatives horsford and jeffreys for leading this. it is white encouraging and i know that our chairman agrees with me when we see our new members come to the forefront and lead. that's why our constituents sent us here and i just want you to know that we are very, very, very proud of you, as we are -- i -- our new member, mr. peap, who just spoke, we are certainly glad you are here an leading. you know we all know our nation's disgraceful history in this area of voting rights. i have often said that if we did not have the voting rights act, this past few years have taught us that we would have to invent it. but decades and decades, racists and excluesary voting practices kept minorit

as read. the gentleman from california, mr. issa, and the gentleman from maryland, mr. cummings, will each control 30 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from california. mr. issa: thank you, mr. speaker. i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks on h.r. 273 and to include extraneous material thereon. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. the gentleman is recognized. mr. issa: mr. speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. good-paying full-time jobs should not be limited to those fortunate enough to work for the federal government. at a time when hardworking american taxpayers are struggling to find work and keep their heads above water, the federal government offices work force a sufficient and generous pay and job security. this is not to imply that they're overpaid. this is not to imply that they're overcompensated. that's a discussion for another day. but certainly at a time in which the american people saw their household income drop by $4,000, that has not happened in the federal work
to a pair of congressmen. congressman cummings, you lost your own nephew to gun violence and today you alongside several other colleagues have announced a bipartisan gun control le legislati legislation. it would impose tough penalties on so-called straw purchasers. but would this bill, sir, penalize only the purchaser, and wouldn't it make more sense to actually make the seller equally culpable if a straw purchase takes place? >> well, we've got several issues here, martin. part of the bill goes to increasing the penalties for straw purchase ers, and this is when somebody goes to a gun dealer. and a lot of the times if they go to a gun dealer, of course, the gun dealer will do a background check and get into this. so that's going to be taken care of. but there's another part of the bill that establishes a gun trafficking law, and basically it would address anybody down the line who might be a part of gun trafficking. if they buy a gun with the intentions of passing it on to a felon or a cartel or what have you, they would be taken care of. so i think we -- the bill is narrow. i think
with another round of snow. you see the windshield wipers working. this is the car of julian cummings. he's our producer who's been navigating the streets of boston for us for more than 12 hours now. we were talking at 2:00 p.m. and now it is long past 2:00 a.m. pictures here in boston -- we'll come back to him but we want to talk to ali velshi who has been in the storm. he actually loves it. let me just say that but there is a twitter handle called save ali velshi. i promise you he wants to be there. he wants to be in the middle of the big story. he has been in cape cod in the town of dennisport, massachusetts and he has an update on the situation. >> they are back in dennisport but off for hundreds of thousands of customers in massachusetts. that's the problem as people wake up in a few hours. they might be waking up in to cold houses. it is cold. the wind has died down. it does feel like we are on the backside of the storm. it is pelting me right now. we have a gust coming through, but there are moments where i don't feel it. and as you can see we have been talking for a couple of hours, i c
. joining us now is congressman elijah cummings. he is a ranking member of the house committee on oversight and government reform, and a member of the committee on transportation and infrastructure. congressman, it is good to have you here this evening. >> it's good to be with you. >> so talk to me, congressman cummings. do you have concerns about these planned changes to the postal service? and particularly the impact that it might have on black communities? >> oh, no doubt about it. you're talking about just this reduction from five days to -- from six days to five days will cut anywhere from 25 to 30,000 employees. and with regard to asian, african-americans, and hispanics, they comprise about 40% of the postal service employees. so it's logical to believe if they were to lose that 30,000 jobs, easily 40% of them would be african-americans, hispanics, and asian americans. now, there is another thing, melissa, that a lot of people don't realize. and that is over 40% of all postal employees are women. >> yeah. >> so you have a lot of women, many of whom are single women -- head of househol
cummings is one of our producers who has been out and about taking video on the roads of boston. this is what he found. >> looking at an impromptu snowball fight. started off with probably about ten people. i guess the bars are getting out here and everybody is rushing down the street, running through. the plows broke it up and the fire department broke it um, and their were serenaded with stons of snowballs as well. >> serenaded by snowballs. i see a car in the picture. i know you have been driving around. when we were talking earlier this afternoon, we know the governor of massachusetts, deval patrick, enforced this travel ban. you couldn't be on the roads after 4:00 in the afternoon. governor dan malloy did the same thing in connecticut. why am i seeing cars? >> there are basically a few cars here and there, but they're usually following emergency vehicles, plows, or people with plows of their own, pickup trucks helping out. for the most part, other than vehicles like ours, we are exempt because we're media, but people are not hitting the roads. we have been out here since 2:
cummings shot it in boston. the bars are beginning to empty. >> and they know they've got the nation's eyes on them. you know, got reporters out there in the street. they're like, why not? let's have fun with this. we do want to warn people, we want these ireports, but stay safe when you're out there because i want to show you this video we got. this was boston. check out that sign there. it says blizzard warning. avoid all travel. as you see the cars whizzing by. people there clearly not heeding the warning. >> not yet. hopefully they did after 4:00 in the afternoon when you couldn't drive in a couple of these states. >> hopefully they did. we want to see you sending in your video, you pictures. you're the eyes of the storm. be safe, stay off the roads, but if you have some amazish pictures out there, we want to see them. >> thank you. go to ireport.com. thank you, thank you. we're reading your tweets. we thank you for it. we'll take you to the hardest hit areas of the storm as we continue our special coverage of the overnight hours of the northeast blizzard.

the lyrics to cum ba, ya? >> i can't help you there. i just have some observations. i like the comment about liberty, freedom. i don't know how that work, but they're good notions. some observations not having been particularly involved in this, but seeing it from the edge. i think a lot of this has to do with the assumptions that various people have. i note that on slide 9 there is a section on the bottom for assumptions. i think this needs to be expanded in the future to explain these terms for those of us that understand and those that don't understand because there are a lot of concepts that are buried in those assumptions as to what means to what different people. one of those that i understand is this billion dollar bond to support local infrastructure build out. i'm not sure that that works and i think that's one of the struggles that i've understood from staff is that you need that in order to build out what lpi and others want to see happen and that may not be liable or it may not be viable with the smaller year term program. so, understanding how that billion dollar bond works into

[laughter] >> i do not know how you learned by worked at national lampoon. saving the world. let me begin by saying how low they must be to go that low in new orleans. i would not put in the same sentence president obama and saving the world. it is very much about movements and the power in our history to bring about a fundamental change. you do need people inside, political leaders inside. it captures the imagination of the nation. through the turbulent history, it has been movement and the power of movements. franklin roosevelt was moved by later movements. lyndon johnson had the civil rights movement. i think we begin with that. this book comes out at a moment when the country sees the power and possibility of occupy, 99%, and how that has shifted. it is still e
